It's sad that the devs almost have to ask permission to release assets and to make them available the way they should have been from the beginning.


ha yeah i noticed that too, that end line "We have a lot of clothing items made a long time ago that we want to start using up and which do not cost us any development time to activate in the client. LOL

so sad



+1 indeed its very sad The wis and avatar part of this game has a very small team ,that was made clear after they changed direction to FIS everybody even the Wislovers welcomed the change in direction

For some reason their are a few little kids crying when something don,t go their way.
CCP has become very afraid of a few people and is afraid to make additions to the game even if that means no extra loss from FIS resources.

Personally, I would love for CCP to devote enough resources to get WiS fully functional in one big push... Give us common places with establishments and entertainment and all that other good stuff, and I dont think anyone will complain much.

Also I would love to know what CCP is doing about that idea of making WiS a free to play aspect of eve, and requiring game time only for flying ships and skill training. That would bring in huge numbers of people to eve, and I think I recall CCP reacting favorably to that idea.

The time is ripe to put this stuff into action with all the Dust bunnies about to land.

I read this idea in Features/Ideas discussion, some inspired chap i cant remember. Its a great idea.

1) F2P people could pave the way for ship crews
a. Adding abilities to ships
b. Taking the role of ship modules by playing mini-game (freeing up slots)

2) F2P people could be ferried for money from station to station
a. Increases Immersion
b. Making courier missions viable
c. Excellent role-play potential

3) F2P for stations will dramatically increase population without causing space to shrink.


However, in order for CCP to make non-PLEXers F2P there would have to be enough station content or ship environments so it doesn't flop.

How the hell you people can equate this to buying ships for AUR is beyond me, you doomsayers really need to get a grip. Yes, this is business, but CCP are committed to keeping Eve the sandbox it is. How avatar gameplay waters down the sandbox is beyond me, or did you blind morons not notice the whole "we scrapped the old system and we're sorry we had the audacity to call it an expansion" thing?

Some of us dont like that we already pay for this game (and it is rather expensive in relation to most games). So why are we going to pay more for special ingame items. The fear is also that CCP might take it even further and involve other special items that will have influence on 'sandbox' gameplay. Also it waters down the sandbox becuase it is second item in the game which can be bought and then sold for ingame items. Not that I'm complaining about PLEX, but I'd prefer that the ability to simply pour money into the game to be rich ingame is kept to a minimum. Although i do agree there are some things that CCP has done to improve the game that really did not deserve negative feedback.

Don't you think Goons have too much power over this game already as to direct CCP in their gameplay decision making? The latest CSM chairman was sacked for being an idiot. That should sum it up.
I considered WiS a not too bad idea. I bet at least half of us have only one account and have no interest in high end content because we simply lack the time and will to make EVE a full time hobby. Initially I was against the F2P idea, but now it doesn't sound that bad, since I realised it's going to be impossible for me to enjoy all aspect of this huge game. Maybe I just want to pay for those areas of the game I'm interested in , and make progress as i gain experience. I found it impossible to travel too far because of gate campers, warp bubbles and wayy more experienced people who enjoy podding pilots with their T3 cruisers.
But I understand that segmenting this game will underminde it's Sandbox nature. So a compromise has to be found. In the meantime, just make us look good, give us more clothes!

...Also, work on some more 'futuristic clothing' as time and resources permit. Most people currently dress little differently in the Eve universe than they do today in the real world. With so many people in the eve universe (not just pod pilots but the poor land-locked saps as well), clothing should be all over the place in styles and colours.

Be nice to have more varied choices available in general as well since pod pilots should have access to stuff all the time. They are the elite of humanity in the Eve universe.


If this test proves successful this is exactly the kind of thing I would like to investigate.


What I do miss from the original Character designer is the range of non-utility clothing which was available. I agree with the whole "They are the elite of humanity" view so why should they wear bland and boring attire?

I always got the impression from this avatar's original picture that she'd been dragged out of the pod, shoved into an ill-fitting formal outfit and shoved in-front of a camera for her mugshot. :)

From a tech/dev perspective though, isn't there a lot of potential cross-over between assets created for EOL and WOD? Why not test potentially compatable clothing from WOD on Sisi with the potential to get early player feedback on the look/feel but also to mark potential items which could be made available via NeX?

Ok, OOC the pricing does not matter much to me.
IC, though, this character would never be able to justify spending the equivalent of 17,000,000 ISK on one item of clothing.
So don't remove free clothing options, even though that means Ché will have to wear simple, non-designer clothes.

Addition: In the old days, there used to be those damaged minnie clothes, right? I kinda miss those.

Aye,

Just the range of items that were available....

With the new ship skinning going on (where there are additional layers for logos etc), can the same be applied to clothing? Can we have a "Toggle corp logo on/off" option?

Leather jackets with corp logos on the back anyone? :)

Put more in for free please. The character creator in EVE is quite bland and AUR is quite expensive. ;)

If you were playing APB, there is this option to customize your clothing by adding stripes, logos, and bunch of other graphic things. Thats nothing new, and maybe can be appied to EVE model of clothing, with little work, i dont know, lets ask some devs.

Also, i think that some "futuristic" looking scafanders, overalls for miners, infogearments will do if we want to be "ahead". I see designs similar to this http://www.sklep-nurkowy.pl/bilder/subiekt/000000000000001911_5362_4dccfade4ad91.jpg apropriate. Also head gear like this http://www.theimaginaryzebra.com/images/blog/060309_6.jpg would be nice but with half transparent visor.

In the dark years between 2006 - 2011 we had the dubious joy of seeing Devs actively cheating and CCP abusing it's player base. I'm very sad to see this abuse start over again with the expansion of the microtransaction feature.

Sorry to say, but im just disgusted with CCP claiming a "null-cost" implementation. It's a lie. CCP has never been very good liars. Plese stop. Try some dignity for once. Tell us the truth: You Will Force This On The Player Base Regardless Of The Consequences. FiS is a thing of the past. As soon as Dust514 hit's the air active development of Eve FiS wil stop.

Why stop there? You should be able to wear all medals.
Oh, and on a side note, I think you should be able to give medals to pilots outside of your corp/alliance.

A couple of days ago a Women's Sterling Dress Bouse (Black Leather) and a Women't Minima Heels (Red) were sold somewhere in the Forge. The White/Black Mystrioso shoes are still up at Jita. Were these prototypes from a developer, or did the store go live for a few minutes? Are these part of the line from the new NEX, or LP shops?

I just had a LOL moment... can you figure what would happen if the missing WiS devblog originally scheduled for May 29th was about "an upcoming release of NEX items", namely the one being delivered tomorrow before the devblog is published...? Lol

steam workshop for eve please :)

player designed, ccp approved clothes, hairstyles, furniture, ship logos,...

once approved, the designer gets X percent of all sales (maybe only in aurum, which can also be used to buy plex from ccp)


THIS ^

because although CCP is creative... you wont beat the sheer personal investment Eve players can put out in terms of creativity

we'll have hats, skirts, capes, Lab coats, gimpsuits, superman disguises etc...

When can we Tag our ships with alliance logos and customize them ?

are we gonna be able to transfer aurum between pilots ?

So why were the Men's 'Sterling' Dress Shirt (Ishukone Special Edition) and Women's 'Executor' Coat (red/gold) released for 500 AUR if CCP were trying to be mindful of players investments?
